Winnipeg parking ban Sunday for snow clearing

Every winter in Winnipeg there is special parking rules implemented to help snow cleaning services move the equipment around the city and clean the streets to make it possible and safe to drive and get to work and back home. The city authorities use special signs to mark places that are prohibited from parking, which are priorities for snow removal.

As per Manager of Streets and Maintenance for the City of Winnipeg, Michael Cantor, the Winnipeg road workers began street clearing on Sunday evening, January 6th.  Cantor says snow plows target main streets first, such as Bishop Grandin Boulevard to alleviate rush hour traffic.

The latest ban starts at 8:00 p.m. Sunday and goes all night until 6:00 a.m. Monday, January 21st.

The affected streets are:

Archibald Street from Nairn to Elizabeth,

St Mary’s Road from Marion to Dunkirk,

Notre Dame Avenue from Portage to Isabel,

Balmoral Street from Notre Dame to Ellice,

South Osborne Street from Hay to Jubilee,

Stradbrook and River avenues around Osborne Village,

Jubilee Avenue Westbound from Pembina to Cockburn.

There are two signs that drivers can search to avoid parking in the wrong place.

In Winnipeg there are five types of parking ban:

Annual Snow Route Parking Ban: Parking is prohibited between 2 and 7 am.

Declared Snow Route Parking Ban: if emergency snow clearance is required, the annual parking ban is at 12 am.

To all the drivers in our city, please pay attention to the parking signs and not only to avoid the fine or your vehicle being towed away but also to help our city road services to clear the roads and streets of snow, to do not block the work of the snow plowing equipment. They are working hard and in severe weather conditions to make our street a safe place to drive.

Residential Parking Ban: used in extreme snowfalls, where all residential streets are assigned a snow zone that determines when there will be a 12-hour snow clearance period on the street.

Snow Emergency: The mayor can announce this at any time.

Temporary No Parking: Signs will appear indicating that individual streets are temporarily in the process of clearing snow.

A snow route parking ban is now in effect, however, it starts at midnight, not the usual 2 a.m.

Vehicles parked in any of these areas will receive a $ 100 fine, the bans will be valid until March 1st. Fellow Winnipeggers let`s all be responsible and polite drivers, it is easy just to follow the rules and parking signs, city authorities are working to do everything to make Winnipeg great and safe place to work and to live in!
